There are 3 heat panels inside the device, one which is electric powered (back panel), and two that are heat absorbing/radiating on either side of the device.
The instructions are english translated directly from their original language, which can lead to some interesting combinations of words. Roughly, the controls are this - Power button that turns the device on or off. Temp button, which changes the levels of power from 1 to 6. Time button, which increments the timer from 5 min to 40 min in 5 min increments. At first look, you can get shocked at the readout, thinking that is the temperature (340 degrees??) but when broken down into 2 parts (level 3 temp for 40 min) it makes sense.
The small folding chair inside can get warm, I would suggest a small wooden stool as a replacement. Also one of the wood dowels that provide support for the shape was a little shorter than the other one, but it was a minor quibble.
The sauna can get quite hot at temps 5 and 6, and recommend that only for short periods of time (15 or 20 min). Be warned that the metal zippers can get warm - make sure you have a towel that you can use to hold onto the zippers or you may be stuck in there until they cool down.
I have been using it at 4 for 30 min, and find it quite comfortable. I might invest in one of the bigger 2 person units later on, but until then this will do the trick!
To begin, let me say THIS IS NOT A STEAM SAUNA! This is an infrared sauna. The rays are emmited by three lamps mounted in the "tent" and absorbed into the body and sweat is released. It does get very hot in the tent. Make sure you are really well hydrated when you start this. The heat range goes from 50 degrees F to 140 degrees F (approx.). I found that to be a comfortable range for me. I think it cycles on in off, so I started on a lower setting, and when I felt it was getting too cool, would tweek it up. The controls are very easy to use.
I liked the design of the product very much. It is really easy to use. It folds up into a rectangle about the size of two pizza boxes put side to side, so if you live in a shoebox like we do, this is the sauna for you. The zipper does stick a little, but just make sure you hold the two sides together when you zip it up and go kinda slow. We haven't had a problem with it yet. It does come with a metal folding chair that is a bit uncomfortable (not to mention, made of metal) and we have opted to use our own chair. There is a hole for your head, and two for arms, which is nice. If you want the whole heat experience, sit on the floor and put a hand towel over the hole. The control panel is like a TV remote. You can set heat levels by number and time by preset minutes. The plastic tent does stink a bit when you first us it, but it goes away eventually, especially if you can air it out. We sweat a lot, so we put towels on the bottom of the tent as well.
We have used this daily for over 2 weeks and not had and problems with it. We were going to get a gym membership just to use a dry sauna, but for the price, this is sooo much better! It is very relaxing.
Also, the first time in each sauna I didn't sweat until after 20 minutes or so. I wondered if it was me or maybe the saunas weren't hot enough since most people sweat right away. I talked to a guy at Therasage and he said this is normal the first couple of times you use a sauna. The body adjusts after 3 or 4 sessions and you will sweat like crazy pretty quickly after getting in the sauna instead sweating a small amount after 20 minutes.
The SI01 sauna very affordable - half the price of the Therasage. It is also light, easy to setup and move around AND after a while I did sweat, but I just cant take the emfs...
see my obviously amateur youtube video of me running my meter around both saunas - go to YouTube and search for

Infraredsaunas are amazing, but if you bought a standard one for your house, you'd be looking at 2k at least. If you go to a spa, you will be paying $50 per trip. Read morePublished 1 month ago by DK
